Went to Chick-fil-a last night. Had a great time. The kids had a blast and met David & Betty. They were super nice and bought a cool toy car for Trevor and a "ruff ruff" stuffed doggie for Audrey (complete in color-matching bags, of course!). The kids had a blast playing in the playground area and neither were super anxious to leave.
I also decided to sneak in a small cookies-n-cream milkshake. I probably shouldn't have but I was about 900 calories short on the day and even with the shake I was still about 40 cals short of my target (after late-night snacks). Not a regular thing but it was nice to delight my tastebuds.
I forgot to pack my lunch today so I'll probably be eating a grilled chicken sandwich from Sonic. I'm wondering if I should eat something else with it? Today is an upper body lift day and I think as long as I limit the fat I should be ok. A few extra carbs and extra protein can't hurt too badly, can they? CAN THEY??? I demand an answer! Uh.....er... never thee mind.
I've contemplated getting one of the new iPhones but I really can't justify the cost. Yesterday a lady asked for advice on the comparative differences between a Windows-based laptop and a Macbook. Apparently her 18 year-old daughter is about to start college and people she knew have a Mac. The pretty, spiffy mac. Said daughter (read:parents) is on a limited budget and has been entranced by the beauty of the technical fruit company. She was ultimately advised to avoid the glamour and check out the lines of Netbooks available from many different manufacturers. Significantly cheaper and available in pink, the netbook route is a compact, affordable option that she will ultimately be much happier with.
If only social status didn't cost so much.
This morning I heard a guest on the radio just talking and then they asked him to sing. It turned out to be none other than Dennis DeYoung of Styx! Oh man he was fantastic. He plays piano beautifully too. (Here's a video for the curious: Styx Reunion Concert - Lady (Youtube)).
